Personalized Learning

National Presenter: Dr. Bena Kallick

The Greater Rochester Teacher Center Network & The Genesee Valley ASCD Presents: "Students at the Center: Personalized Learning with Bena Kallick"

How can we design learning experiences that are more in tune with the contemporary world we are living in and the students we have in front of us? The true goal of personalized learning: for every student to become self-directed learners through the design and development of their learning experiences. In this session, Kallick will define personalized learning as a simple and powerful frame that allows students to thoughtfully engage with inquiry, generate ideas, and develop challenging yet achievable performance opportunities. She will provide many examples and opportunities to design for your students. Learn of strategies to help students set goals, be self-directed, monitor their own persistence and impulsivity, and listen with empathy and understanding. The Habits of Mind serve as dispositions in which all learners-- adults and students-- can engage that help them become successful participants in that uncertain future.
